Game of Thrones sets taking shape on the waterfront in Kaštel Gomilica; filming at Toome in September

1

The latest Game of Thrones location photos arrive via Croatia’s Jutarnji List (The Morning Paper), showing that HBO’s crews have completely covered the red boards seen in earlier photos and have begun transforming some of the docks and waterfront buildings of Kaštel Gomilica.

Eight more new photos below the cut!

With the announcement of Kaštel Gomilica as a new location for season five, what fans have been wondering is, is this our Braavos? With every new addition to the sets developing by the Kaštilac, it seems more and more likely. There’s now more decoration added to the area, in addition to the construction.

Update: We’re also hearing there’s going to be filming in Toome, Northern Ireland, at the beginning of September, around this set.

    1. Looking like a sexy Braavos but I’m really gaggging for some stuff that gives us an inkling of whether so far missing characters are going to put in an appearance!

    2. TheTouchOfFrost,

      Yeah I wonder if we’ll even get Volantis. But I’m glad that what seems to be Braavos is shaping up! Arya’s Feast/Dance plot was one of my favorites from those two books. I love seeing the cultures of each city adapted to TV.

    4. I hope that all those boats will get moved away. Yes they could CGI them out, but I would rather they use the VFX budget on something else. The set/town looks great.

    5. Lion of Night,

      Sometimes I think they only include certain areas so they get to go to such beautiful locations! 😛

      Didn’t see the Toome one! Early days but I’m thinking the boat from Pentos to Volantis 🙂

    6. Always fun to see how things take shape and then try to imagine the VFX filling in the scene! Then when the season comes I inevitably forget which parts are real and which are VFX anyway! XD

      I would certainly hope the production staff is smart enough to drive a boat 20ft out of frame…

    8. Hoyti_Von_Totiy,

      Are they filming in that mansion too?

      That really, really could be Illyrio’s place at Pentos. I mean, they haven’t filmed in Malta since season 1; they can’t really use the President’s Palace anymore.

    9. Interestingly, he is marked under three directors but not under David Nutter.

      One would assume his big scene will be in either episode 9 or 10. Maybe the marked directors are ones he’s worked with so far, or maybe that scene is delayed to season 6. Maybe it happens earlier on.
      EDIT: Nope, can’t see it happening in episode 6 which is the latest episode he’s marked under. He probably only wrote directors he’s worked with so far.

    10. Dragonslayer,

      I know. It’s just that the actor that plays Othell in season 4 was assumed to be playing Bowen Marsh, so people thought the characters might’ve been merged. Now we know that’s not the case; there will be a Bowen Marsh.

    11. jentario,

      It’s either an incomplete list of the directors he’s worked with/will work with or as you say, only one of those he’s worked with so far. If the Ides of Marsh are this season, which I presume they will be, then Nutter will direct them, I’m certain of that.

    12. Luka Nieto,

      How did you find that? This is huge! It’s now the second named character that is cast and wasn’t on the leaked casting sheet. Marsh is a huge role! Makes me a bit optimistic for other castings (Manderly!).

    13. jentario,

      Some other person must have found out about it. I’ve just seen in the Game of Thrones wiki, which I read and edit a lot, and that link was the reference.

      And this isn’t really a “big” role, even though it’s important. What I mean is you’re probably right —Mandarly and smaller characters like that are certainly a possibility. The fact they haven’t been announced yet shouldn’t tell us anything.

    14. Luka Nieto,

      It’s big in the sense that he has a lot of screentime and does important things (not in terms of him being main cast or anything). I definitely think he’s on the same level as Manderly.

    15. That guy is much younger than the book’s Bowen Marsh. I’m not so sure the character will serve the same purpose in the show,

      post LC election.

      Was Bowen’s age ever specified in the books? I don’t remember.

    17. Annara Snow,

      He is called “Old Pomegranate” by the black brothers so I suppose he’s not young. Nevertheless I don’t think that his age is really an issue (for instance, they casted a skinny Yezzan, so…)

    18. Luka Nieto,

      Dammit, i’ve been trying to get unofficial confirmation on this guy for weeks (found Condron via UA with no role listed), and they just go ahead and post it like that LOL.

      Also his spotlight CV confirms he’s in three episodes.

      Thank you Luka! Posting a little bit later. We have a brand new post up now.

    19. Sue the Fury,

      Fury, is the whole 3 episode thing for sure or could that be the episodes he has filmed for for now? Because that would mean he probably doesn’t do what he does in the books (at least not in season 5).

    20. jentario,

      I’m going by the directors he works with, and I think it is telling that he isn’t listed as working beyond episode 6. Of course, Ciaran Hind’s CV page listed him as working with 5 directors in season 4, and he only appeared in 1 episode. So who knows? I just wouldn’t be surprised to see the NW dynamics changed in the show. For instance, I can’t see Thorne being as big of a dick after what happened in episode 4×09.

      No, the CV just confirms that he’s in at least 3 episodes, since it lists that he’s worked with 3 different directors (Mark Mylod, Michael Slovis, Jeremy Podeswa). Since these directors are supposed to be doing back-to-back episodes, it’s more likely he’s in more than 3 episodes.

      The CV says nothing about the episodes. He just has three directors listed; those may simply be the directors he’s worked with already. They are still shooting.

    23. Tyrion Pimpslap,

      I agree, and looks like you’re right. He’s only in three episodes according to Fury.

      Maybe the scene IS delayed to season 6. God knows, we all expected season 4 to end with the Lord Commander election and it didn’t. Jon has a lot of material to cover (especially with the added election stuff- and it seems they are going all the way with the election given Denys Mallister’s casting so I think it’ll take up about two episodes). He has 12 chapters in ADWD. Another thing is that this scene might be scrapped entirely- if they aren’t casting a fake Arya then Jon won’t be sending anyone to go steal her away and Ramsay will likely not write him the Pink Letter which means he may not get assassinated at all.

      There is of course the possibility that someone else will assume Marsh’s role, but it seems pointless to me to cast yet another Night’s Watch recurring character to do nothing important when they already have Othel, Olly, Edd, Sam, Slynt, Thorne, some Wildlings and the newly added Denys Mallister at the Wall. We’ll see, I guess.

      Where are you getting the “three episodes” thing from? The only thing his CV says is that he’s worked with three directors, which just means he is in at least three episodes.

      Oh wait, it doesn’t actually say that.
      But thanks for reposting a post I’ve already read, anyway.
